How often medical certificate needs to be renewed?

Many food handlers have recently raised the question of whether and how often the employer needs to renew employees' medical certificate. Answer is simple- all food handlers must have medical certificate before start working. Further on, additional health control will take place as a result of the risk management – if there is enough reason to suspect, that employee has health issues (infection, infected product, infectious disease), the employer has the right to send the employee to additional health control.

FoodDocs recommends to renew your employees' health certificates after every 2 years.
